Nearly three months after his "car accident" spurred the discovery of not one, not five, not 10, but more than a dozen mistresses, he finally decided it was time to apologize. In February during a tightly controlled televised statement, the pro golfer put on a sad face about his "irresponsible and selfish" behavior and cited Buddhism as part of his path to recovery.

This past March, Sandra Bullock reclaimed her title as America's Sweetheart and snagged an Oscar for her scrappy role in The Blind Side. But she didn't get to enjoy the glory for long.

He apologized, but Sandy filed for divorce in June. Talk about being blind-sided.
